1408 (film)

From Quotes
Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
Henry Miller

Mike Enslin

  • [After turning on the lights upon entering Room 1408] This is it?
  • Hotel rooms are a naturally creepy place.
  • It does have the vague air of menace.
  • It's not that what I'm seeing is not real. It just ain't as real as it seems.
  • [speaking into his recorder as he goes out on the ledge, trying to escape the room] If something should happen, if I should slip and fall, I want it known it was an accident. The room did not win.
  • [before throwing the ashtray through the window, thereby letting the room explode] On the shiver scale, I give the Dolphin Hotel... ten skulls.
  • [speaking nonchalantly to the ghoulish apparation in the vents as the room burns] Ah, shut up you ugly bastard....

Mr. Olin

  • It's an evil fucking room.
  • I warned you about 1408.
  • Look, I'm not telling you not to stay in that room for your own good or for the profit of the hotel. Frankly, selfishly, I just don't want to clean up the mess.

Lily Enslin

  • I called the cops. They're in Room 1408. The room is empty.

Other

  • Postcard: Don't enter 1408.
  • Workman: I ain't going in that room.
  • Radio: We've only just begun. [Song by The Carpenters played on the clock radio, whenever it comes on.]
  • Hotel operator: All guests get to relive this hour over again. If you wish, feel free to use our express check out service. (Camera pans out to reveal a noose hanging from the ceiling.)
  • The Room: We have killed your friends. Eight, eight. All friends are now dead. Five, five.

Dialogue

Fan: So you're saying there's no such things as ghosts.
Mike: I'm saying I've never seen one. Nothing would make me happier than to experience a paranormal event.

Hotel operator: That room is not available.
Mike: ...I didn't tell you which date.

Mr. Olin: During your investigation did you discover the twenty-two natural deaths that have occurred in 1408?
Mike Enslin: Natural deaths?

Mr. Olin: All told, in the ninety-five years of the hotel's existence there have been fifty-six deaths in Room 1408.
Mike Enslin: Fifty-six? You're shitting me.

Mike: You're not going anywhere. You're staying here with us.
Katie: Daddy, everyone dies.

Mr. Olin: A few years ago a young maid from El Salvador found herself locked in the bathroom. She was only there for a few moments, but when we pulled her out she was...
Mike Enslin: [sarcastically] She was dead?
Mr. Olin: No. Blind. She had taken a pair of scissors and gouged her eyes out. She was laughing hysterically.

Mike Enslin: Why don't you just kill me?
Room 1408: Because all guests of this hotel enjoy free will, Mr. Enslin.

Mike Enslin: [Olin gives Enslin the room key] Most hotels have switched to magnetics. An actual key. That's a nice touch, it's antique.
Mr. Olin: We have magnetic cards also, but electronics don't seem to work in 1408. Hope you don't have a pacemaker.
Mike Enslin: [into his tape recorder] General manager claims that the phantom in room interferes...
Mr. Olin: I have never used the word "phantom."
Mike Enslin: Oh, I'm sorry. Uh, spirit? Specter?
Mr. Olin: No, you misunderstand. Whatever's in 1408 is nothing like that.
Mike Enslin: Then what is it?
Mr. Olin: It's an evil fucking room.
